Energy Challenge Event
On 9 June, the TU Delft campus will be all about students and their ideas for the future of the energy transition. This year, almost all students will pay extra attention in their education to the transition to a society where the energy supply is more sustainable. A large number of ideas and prototypes will be on display on 9 June during the Energy Challenge Event, which is part of TU Delft's anniversary celebrations.
There is plenty to do for students on the event terrain. Find out what other faculties are doing to speed up the energy transition, participate in challenges, network with alumni, attend lunch lectures, cycle your own smoothie and learn more about what you can do to contribute to this year’s lustrum mission. Bring your friends, fellow students or housemates and enjoy a 'real' event on campus again!
Stay up to date via this website, which we will update regularly, or follow @tudelftcampuslife on Instagram. Below are some examples of what will take place on 9 June.
Our faculty is also part of the Energy Challenge. Not only within the curriculum we participate, but also with several side-events, during, but also before the big Energy Challenge event on June 9. During several courses, attention is paid to the energy transition and students are confronted with the importance of accelerating this. In the aerospace bachelor, during the thermodynamics course, students saw how the theories they are learning can be applied in practice. This was done by demonstrating this through a mini heat pump and solar water heater. These energy efficient innovations covered all the theory about thermodynamics from their courses and made it amenable to the students.
On June 9 at the construction campus, prototypes, presentations and final assignments, among other things, will be on display from various faculties. There will also be the opportunity to meet fellow students, faculty and alumni over snacks and drinks and to spar about accelerating the energy transition.
The Energy Club, Greenteams, Energy for Refugees and study associations, among others, will also be showing their solutions for the energy transition. Also, the Dreamteams will also be present with their prototypes. Students from the TU Delft, InHolland and The Hague University of Applied Sciences will be demonstrating their developed ideas together for a problem posed by the municipality of Delft as part of the Energy Challenge and City Deal/WijStad collaboration.
Are you also curious about the Energy Challenge event, or do you want to know more about what our TU Delft community is doing to accelerate the energy transition? Come to our Energy Challenge event on the 9th of June at the Bouwcampus terrain and enjoy a real TU Delft festival, where energy transition is central.
See you then!
